Unless you have a wireless router to conduct traffic, you won't be able to print wirelessly to the AIO 966.

You will need a cable (and it's possible the printer didn't come with one). You'll need a USB A-B cable to do this. You can find one at any office supply store, Radio Shack, Target... it's a common part.

Then with with laptop and printer on, plug in the cable to each and Windows should recognize the device and you'll be able to print.

How can I connect my printer to my wireless network


If you have a wireless-enabled printer, you can use the printer's configuration to connect it to the router. If you have a wired connection printer (ethernet port) connect it to one of the ports on the back of the router with an Ethernet cable and the printer should sort itself out. If your printer is not network-enabled, you will need to connect it directly to a network-connected computer, then use Windows' sharing settings to share the printer to the network.
Hope this helps, Alistair

Below you will find 2 options to add wireless connectivity to your desktop.
A. USB Wireless LAN
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/category.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&category_id=6638&nf=44907%7e0%7e598274&sort=-ratingaverage&~ck=anav
This is the easiest solution to add a wireless connection. Simply connect the USB adapter, install the software it comes with and connect to the wifi signal, once configured.

B. PCI/PCI-e Hardware Wireless LAN
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/category.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&category_id=5821&nf=44907~0~598274&sort=price&~ck=anav
Adding a PCi/PCI-e expansion card requires opening your computer and manually installing the card, then installing the driver/software and configuring the wireless access. These cards typically offer faster speeds and stronger radios to communicate with wifi signals better.
NOTE: There are 2 types of wireless cards in the second link: PCI/PCI-e and Half-Card/Mini-Card. Half/Mini-Card adapters are for laptops only - they will not work on desktop computers!
Both USB or PCI/PCI-e offer excellent solutions to getting wireless access from your desktop. Furthermore, since it can be purchased through Dell.com, they can ship anywhere worldwide, so delivery to the Netherlands should not be a problem.
If you have any questions, you can always contact Dell's Customer Support by telephone and be sure to give them your service tag number, that will ensure that you get only the parts that match your desktop.

Hooking up cables and phone line to use the Fax on the P3150


Find a telephone wall-jack.
Buy a 1-to-2 telephone-splitter -- one end plugs into the wall-jack, and the other end provides 2 telephone-jacks.

Connect your telephone to one of those 2 jacks.
Connect your All-In-One to the other of those 2 jacks.
Be sure to use a 4-wire telephone-cable, not an 8-wire network-cable.

Had printer working with desktop, purchased wiless and cannot get printer to communicate.


Hi there,

Well it's better if you tell me which operating system you are using....?
anyway please follow the below steps to communicate your printer to the desktop  -

1. Check if your printer is network ready. Many newer models are designed to work on networks. Examine the documentation to see if your printer supports Wi-Fi (802.11x) or Bluetooth. 
 
2. Add network support to your printer. If your printer is not already wireless you can connect it to a wireless router using the RJ-45 Jack (it resembles a large telephone jack). You can also buy an expansion card that will add a jack or buy an external print server that will connect to the USB or parallel port.
 
3. Connect your printer to the network. If your printer is not wired, you’ll have to connect it directly to your wireless router. Connect a networking cable from the RJ-45 Jack on the printer (or adapter) to the router. Plug it into any jack except the UPLINK. The printer should automatically connect to the network when turned on.
 
4. Install printer drivers on all computers. Using the disc that came with the printer or drivers downloaded from the manufacturer, install the printer’s drivers onto each computer on the network.
 
5. Print. You should be able to access the printer just like any other wireless device. Select the printer from the Print menu when you print.

Share Your Printer in Windows
 
1. Install the printer. Set up the printer as normal on a machine that is already connected to the wireless network. Connect all necessary cables and install all necessary drivers.
 
2. Open the printers and faxes folder. Click "Start," then "Control Panel," then "Printers and Other Hardware" and then "Printers and Faxes."
 
3. Share your printer. Find the icon for the printer you just installed. Click the icon once and then select SHARE THIS PRINTER in the tasks pane on the left. Now, right click the icon, select properties and go to the SHARING tab. Click "Share Name," and then click "Okay."
 
4. Connect to the printer. On the other computers within the network, open the control panel and click "Printers and Other Hardware." Select "Add a Printer."
 
5. Select "Printer Connection." When prompted, select this option instead of the local printer. Find and select the printer you just installed and select it. 
 
6. Print as normal. Next time you print a page, send it to your networked printer.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Hi, to connect your computer to the wireless network of the router you need to have a wireless adapter. The bluetooth adapter will not work in this case as the router does not communicate with the bluetooth signals.

Purchase a wireless adapter like NETGEAR WG111

Rate it, if it helps.

I can't receive and send fax


The splitter the technician is referring to goes on the wall jack. One should have come with the "modem" installation package.
Take a regular telephone cord and plug one end into the splitter and the other into the line jack on the Fax/printer.
When your done you should have two phone cords connected to the splitter - one going to the "modem" and the other to the printer.
